WWF Smackdown! Report for March 28, 2002
-The SmackDown! video rolls and the pyro explodes, and we are not exactly LIVE from Philly for the last full-roster SmackDown! Tonight, Rock, Hogan, and Kane will take on the nWo.
In the back, Rock and Hogan talk about how this is their last chance at whooping the nWo's candy-asses. Hogan reminds Rock that they have Kane with them tonight. He's been in the ring with a lot of scary dudes, but Kane is the scariest. He asks Rock if they can trust Kane. Rock says he ain't King Kong Bundy, or KAMALA! WHOO! UMBELE!!! But he is one Big Red Ass-Kicking Machine.
Kane comes in. Rock tells Hogan that Kane is scary, but not scared. He asks Kane if he's ready to whoop it. Kane says he's ready, and asks Rock if he's ready. IT DOESN'T MATTER IF HE'S READY! Kane tells them that it doesn't matter if it's the millions of Rock fans, or twenty thousand Hulkamaniacs, or twenty thousand Kanenites. The question remains: what are Hall, Nash, and X-Pac gonna do when The People's Champ, The Hulkster, and The Big Red Machine run wild on them?!?
Kane does all the poses and walks off, successfully completing one of the most hilarious scenes in WWF history. Plus it had Kamala. Any scene with Kamala is automatically golden. But that was just hilarious. Fade Out.
